#8 - Manhole Cover

Manhole covers in Japan are very fashionable and unique, reflecting each locality.

For example....................
Coastal towns like Otaru City and Monbetsu City have cute sea otter covers.


Yokohama City has a famous soccer team. That's way it has the team mascot on the covers.

Hiroshima City has a famous baseball team. Now you've already known what I'll show you!! The team mascot is on the covers!

Mr. Shigeru Mizuki, a famous cartoonist, is from Sakaiminato City and his popular cartoon characters are on the covers on the street!

The Osaka Castle is also on the covers in Osaka City!

Interesting, isn't it?
